Nina Hartley

Growing up in Berkeley, California, during the 1960s and ‘70s, Nina Hartley was drawn to sex, sexuality and sexual expression early on, in keeping with the social activism and Liberationist politics of her family. Her interest in spreading a message of sexual liberation—as well as wanting to spend more time with naked women—led her to a career in adult entertainment, where she was known for her enthusiastic embrace of all consensual pleasure, albeit mostly vanilla.

Ms. Hartley was only able to identify her kink orientation when she met her husband and Master, Ernest Greene, on the set of an adult movie. Should organizing Barbie orgies as a girl been a sign, or dreaming about group sex before she had even kissed anyone?

What matters now is that Ms. Hartley lives the dream as a happy slavewife to, and co-producer with, Mr. Greene. Ms. Hartley lives in Los Angeles with Master Greene and prefers to do housework wearing just her collar and a smile.


Nina Hartley will be presenting the following workshop at Sin 2017:
